Service Description

Do you want to add more texture and detail to your clay work? This workshop will explore a subtractive carving technique to achieve a three dimensional design. Over the past 20 years, Tabitha has developed her distinct carving method to portray realistic plant and nature patterns in clay. During this weekend course you will learn how to layout a leaf pattern and practice carving on a test tile. Then we will transfer that drawing/technique to a mug or tumbler. Pieces will be provided to work on or bring in your own leatherhard wares. This is a time consuming process so keep the size of your piece in mind. You should be able to hold it comfortably in your hand. A mug or small vase with a bulbous form in a smooth clay body would work well. Both wheel workers and hand builders are invited to join in on this workshop. To register for the Carving session of this series, use this booking. If you are looking to register for all 4 sessions, or a different individual session, please find their bookings in the workshops section under the Engage tab at the top of our website.
